http://youtu.be/3O-o5gwi4HI During my orignal Blog about this woman the video says is Ginger Rogers, I said I was not sure it was her or not. I have since found out it is not Ginger. According to The London Times, the womans name is Sarah “Paddy” Jones and she is seventy-five years old. She is from England, but relocated to Spain. Her partner is Nicholas Espluosa, her thirty-five year old dance instructor. The pair is popular in Spain and made it to their number two spot.
Her husband died six years ago and Mrs Jones took up Salsa to help her recover from her husband’s death. This grandmother of six is now globe-trotting “doing her thing.” She began dancing at the age of two, training for ballet, tap and Greek dancing. When she married at age twenty-two, she gave up her dancing career and became a dental nurse. After working as a dental nurse she and her husband ran a fabric shop.
She plans on continuing her career in dance as long as she is able to. I think she is absolutely wonderful to be able to move as she does and share her talent with all who see her. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all move like she does? I can hardly raise my leg, much less put it up beside my head. She has been blessed and I am happy for her. That’s my two cents for today.
